“In the past year there have been some great moments with the youth, including band nights, jamming sessions, FIFA tournaments, pool competitions and a lot more. I have learned through the YMCA that everyone and anyone can get along, and I have made some new friends here too.” (Alex)

Interested in becoming a volunteer?

The YMCA offers opportunities for young people and their communities to develop in mind, body and spirit and so help to fulfil their potential. We endeavour to reflect this holistic approach in the way we recognise the value of each individual volunteer and enable them to make their unique contribution to the organisation’s mission and thus to the community. The YMCA values diversity and welcomes applications from across all of the community. If you are interested in knowing more about volunteering at YMCA Essex and would like to speak to us, please call us on 01245 355677 or email us at admin@ymcachelmsford.co.uk.

Anyone who can help us further the mission and goals of YMCA Essex without being financially remunerated is considered a volunteer.

Our Board of Trustees

We are also committed to ensuring that diversity is reflected strongly within the Board of Trustees. The Board is made up of volunteers who seek to give vision and overall direction to the aims of the YMCA, and draws its strength from the variety of individuals from many backgrounds who bring their personal skills to unite together to lead this YMCA. The Board of Trustees meets approximately every 6-8 weeks for 2 hours.

If you are interested in being considered as a voluntary Trustee and would like more details, please call us on our main telephone number 01245 355677 and we will arrange for the Chairman of the Board of Trustees to contact you direct.
